Acting Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn said it is important everyone supports each other in getting through this 'uniquely challenging time'.

He said: “Encourage your family and friends to heed the public health advice. Now more than ever, we need to work collectively. Our individual actions count on a population level.

“Every one of us doing our bit in our daily lives - halving our social contacts, working from home, keeping our distance, wearing a face covering, washing our hands - matters a great deal.

"These small, positive steps taken together amount to our best and strongest defence against the virus.”
